America's Got Talent: Season 6, Episode 1 :: Los Angeles and Atlanta Auditions

May 31, 2011

Season 6 of America’s Got Talent kicked off with auditions in Los Angeles and Atlanta, where judge Sharon Osborne admitted they found the most talented group of people ever! Episode 1 aired on May 31, 2011!

Audition #1: Los Angeles

First, judges Sharon Osborne, Piers Morgan and Howie Mandel hit the city where stars are born - Los Angeles. The auditions began with a 50-year-old juggler named Frank, who used Howie’s head to balance himself on his super-tall unicycle. Being afraid of germs, Howie hates it when people touch him. Despite Howie’s anger and disgust, Sharron and Piers sent him to Las Vegas.

Next, we met 34-year-old Ryan Andreas, who was sent straight to Vegas after performing a beautiful version of In The Arms of an Angel while playing the piano. We also met Landon, an up-and-coming magician; as well as another juggler named Frank. Only instead of using Howie as an armrest, Frank juggled three 500,000-volt stun guns while standing in a tub of water! Yikes! One mistake and it could have been lights out for Frank.

Audition #2: Atlanta

Atlanta delivered tons of amazing talent, including the Miami All-Stars, a dance group of 24 members who stunned the judges with their swift and synchronized choreography.  We also met the Sh’Boss Boys, a 5-, 6- and 7-year-old trio who rapped about doing well in school.

There were, of course, some mishaps that caused one 50-year-old dancer to fall off the stage. Then came the husband and wife sword fighters who impressed Piers but not the other two judges.

Finally, a dance group called Illuminate wrapped up the show with something the judges having never seen before. A female dancer and software programmer designed a technology that played with lights on the dancers' costumes. The room was pitch-black during their audition, save for the fascinating combination of lights that were controlled by the creator off-stage. Here’s a clip of their performance to give you a better idea of what we’re talking about:

Alright let me start out by saying that, I do not think you should be forced to like anime. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions out what they watch. But their is some bogus reason to why people say they hate it. 1. "Anime is For Kids" - Alright we all know this isn't true. Sure some are directed towards kids but ones like Tokyo Ghoul, Attack On Titan, Boku no Pico, and several others that would definitely change people's mind. 2. "Anime is a bad influence" - And Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead arent?  3. "Anime has very inappropriate messages to them that are harmful to children and adults" - Doesnt everything have their little "parodies" of the original that may have a rating of Triple X? If its out there, there is a "parody" of it. Not just anime.
